Each time you receive a prescription that you doctor has put on ‘repeat’, a slip is attached for you to request a repeat issue of the medication. To request a repeat prescription, you should mark the items clearly that you require and deliver to the practice. You can also send to us by post and if you provide a stamped address envelope we will return it by post to you.
Repeat prescriptions can be ordered online via the link at the top of this page.
If you have mislaid your request slip, a prescription request slip is available at reception.
For safety reasons, we do not accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone
EPS enables prescribers-such as GP’s and Practice Nurses – to send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of the patient choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient, quicker and convenient for patients and staff. It also avoids the need to call into the surgery to collect your prescription and enables you to go direct to the Pharmacy to collect your medication. In order to take full benefit of this service, you will need to advise us of your nominated pharmacy and also provide your consent with your next repeat prescription request.
The practice operates a Dispensary situated at our Alfriston Surgery dispensing also to our East Dean Surgery. Due to dispensing regulations we are only able to dispense medication to our registered Alfriston and East Dean patients only.

We ask that our Alfriston and East Dean patients support and use the Dispensary for their medication requirements in order that we can maintain this service for you. We are the only practice in our Clinical Commissioning Group with a Dispensary and very much want to continue providing this personal service for our rural communities.We politely request that our Alfriston and East Dean patients support and use the Dispensary for their medication requirements in order that we can maintain this service.

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
From 1 April 2018, the charges are:
